Potato Chip Chicken Recipe

"This is one of the best recipes I've ever used," notes Jody Roberts from her home in Hollister, California. Crushed potato chips make the crispy coating for the moist tender chicken. "Not only is it quick and easy, but I think it tastes better than fried chicken," she adds.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 cup coarsely crushed potato chips
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
